2:02 am
snow, wind, and icy rain, the aftermath of an all night blizzard, the northeast is still getting pummeled by a historic storm and now this. the nor'easter has turned deadly. it is not likely to come back any time soon. plus we'll also be following that man hunt that's continuing in los angeles for a former cop on a rampage. cnn now has exclusive video showing just how deadly he is. it is february, february 9th and you're watching our special coverage of the nor'easter. police say somebody died in ray storm-related crash in poughkeepsie new york. the boston area being slammed with hurricane-force winds and looks like connecticut is taking the brunt of the snow and up to two feet of snow in some places,
2:03 am
more to come elsewhere falling at a clip of 3 inches an hour. and hundreds of cars now stuck in that snow on long island on the long expressway and sunrise highway. the roads are closed now to just about everybody except those emergency vehicles. police say nose have been rescued but still some are stranded. we'll have an update from long island in always ji fjust a few it knocked out power to 600,000 households and businesses across eight states. winds are gusting in some places 70 miles an hour. that won't help and, that, of course, is tearing down the tree limbs and power lines and leaving families in the dark and bitter cold. massachusetts is hardest hit. at this particular point, that is. in rhode island, more than 800,000 customers don't have electricity, more than a fifth
2:04 am
of its population. poppy harlow is there. >> reporter: i wouldn't like to do it with anyone but you, good morning, marty, good morning, america. many of you waking up, millions of you to a complete whiteout what we have here in providence, rhode island. i want to take a second trip to pan our camera and show you the whiteout conditions we've had since 10:00, 11:00 eastern. it's a tall hotel and restaurant but you wouldn't know by looking at it. you can't see that. that's what we've been dealing w where are we? we're literally in front of town hall in the center of providence. i've been here for hours on end here and we haven't seen really a single pedestrian. a few stragglers around 10:00 p.m. and sledding around here but that's about it. it's been completely abandoned. theyen baaed traffic after 5:00 p.m. eastern making it illegal for anyone in rhode island to be
2:05 am
on the roads. ist-95 that entire corridor, connecticut, rhode island, completely shut down, folks. that has hasn'ted since the great blizzard of 1978 but the big struggle here in the early morning hours is the power outages. as marty told you 183,000 homes without power. that number is only going to go up. we knew this would happen because the snow is wet, the know is heavy and because the temperatures stayed a little bit above freezing you had wet, thick snow weighing on the power lines bringing them down and trees down and when the power goes out the big concern is the heat. we saw it in the aftermath of sandy but much warmer then. hoi soon can the power company, national grid, get that power back up and running? that is the situation on providence, rhode island, again, 183,000 homes without power. i want to go to susan candiotti,
2:06 am
my colleague in boston, boston surely getting hit incredibly hard. what are you saying? >> reporter: much the same thing you are. it's blowing sideways as it has been purchase of the night and swirling around in all kinds of different directions. felt like pin needles during most of the day tri and into the evening when it would pelt you in the face and now still seeing much of that but also getting a sense that perhaps the flakes are just a little bit bigger. but as we take a look down now here, a turkey truck just came down this road. we are in columbus park in downtown boston where we have not lost power throughout the night. so this park, this truck just cleared a little bit of a path here but look at how the snow has piled humanary some of the drift that is back there, as well. now, jumping over here, i just want to show you how deep it is.
2:07 am
if i could -- if i could make it over the drift okay, not very artfully done and there you have it and putting the stick in the yardstick, looks like 18, 19 inches. remember, the record being at least 27. this stands to be a pretty good chance since it doesn't liook like it'll let up any time soon. >> reporter: the snow does not look like it's giving up any time soon. viewers to staten island to gary tuckman braving it in staten island and telling such an important story. this is a place that was hit so hard after sandy. 23 deaths there and power out for weeks on end. people very concerned with this storm, gary. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, poppy within the last hour the snow is basically stopped to the great
2:08 am
relief of the people of staten island. because like you said the people suffered here so much. staten island is only 5% of new york city but had more than half the deaths from hurricane sandy, 23 people died here. there are still an estimated 1400 people who are homeless. i was here three months ago because so many homes were damaged. this right here was a home. and you can see it is rubble and it has stayed rubble. this next door was heavy di damaged however they're rebuilt it. the family that rebuilt was hoping to move in but because of the blizzard they had to stop the work. there was so much concern in staten island because of what happened three months ago, just a couple of blocks away from here. a woman had her two children. her car was blown offer the road
2:09 am
and she couldn't hold on to them. they found them later, 2 of the 23 that died and there still is to this day but as a matter of fact across the street you see that tent, people aren't living in that tent. it has been put up to provide hot feels for homeless people. when this started there were people who were homeless from sandy having luncheon side that tent. there's a great sense of relief that the blizzard wasn't as bad as it was in connecticut, rhode island, massachusetts, new hampshire and maine. poppy, back to you. >> gary, they can take any break they can get. it's been so tough. you've been on that sort for months. thank you, marty, want to send it back to you in the cold water studio. >> i wish i was out with you we'll check back. nearly 5,000 flights have been
2:10 am
canceled. to and from the northeast, probably no surprise and that is likely to stay the norm for awhile. there will be no flights out of boston's logan until at least sunday we're being tolded. flights out of newaof new york'k has closed until 1:00 p.m. time eastern time. check your airline to verify the status of your flight before you head out to the airport. so, how much of the snow are we expecting to fall and who will get the most of it? meteorologist alexandra steele is following that. >> good morning, everyone. look at some of these numbers. incredibly impressive, looks right now like connecticut, the bull's-eye. camden, 34 inches thus far and hamden is right off i-91, madison is long the shoreline, 32 inches so far and worse sker,
2:11 am
mass, 10 inches, bergen county, 15 inches. in fairfield county, 19 so across the board incredibly dramatic, islip and central park 8.1 inches and the snow continues. it is wrapping up, the good news but once it wraps up we'll see 30 to 40-mile-an-hour wind gusts and 25 million people being affected. you can see where the back side is. it's in number state new york, western new york. all moving eastwards about awe show closer, that white banding is where we're seeing the heaviest snowfall. maybe two to three inches an hour for some how we're getting incredible snow totals. so here's a look at what we'll see in terms of wind. we know how much we've seen. at 5:00 this morning, watch it from west to east but notice
2:12 am
these isobars where the winds will be strong. by 7:00, long island getting out of it. western connecticut and western mass, as well. by the afternoon, 1:00, everyone but the islands and all pushing north and continuing to move eastward. the snowwise but what we'll see is the wins continuing to blow around what we've seen already, which is two and three feet. >> that brings me to the question which is a lot of travel bans we know in effect. would could they be lifted. >> in boston and massachusetts, first time at 4:00 they have done this travel ban and everyone certainly in agreement that this was such a good idea keeping everyone off the road. hard to know when they'll bring it back, the roads which everybody has been off. certainly sooner than it would have been without the ban. by the afternoon we'll watch this. by 10:00 you can see it's all but gone from chatham to all the
2:13 am
way to the cape and islands. still this morning, see the snow end and maybe some ftomorrow. >> thanks. a lot more on the blizzard in the northeast. people stuck on a major highway. an update live and show you what's happening in your neighborhood. >> it's been going on for about three to four hours of heavy, windy snow. just absolutely crazy amounts. >> that is you out in the storm. more sights and sounds from our ireporters coming up next. s. now you can. with stayfree ultra thins. flexible layers move with your body while thermocontrol wicks moisture away. keep moving. stayfree. while thermocontrol wicks moisture away. for over 75 years people ...with geico... ohhh...sorry!. director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action

2:16 am
good morning, and welcome back to special coverage of the blizzard 2013. live images coming to us from boston. one of the arias being impacted by this massive storm dumping a record amount of snow in some places. that's proving a problem for people traveling especially from, say, connecticut to massachusetts. they have been urged to stay off
2:17 am
the road. in new york hundreds of drivers are stuck trapped by know on the long island expressway. joining me on the phone to talk more about that is ed shiner. he is the director of emergency preparations for suffolk county. ed, thanks for joining us this morning. and let me ask you this, where are these cars and home do you think are stuck? >> well, most are on the long island expressway and some of the roads that travel north and south on -- in the county also are at the higher elevations where we got higher accumulations of snow. we have cars stuck up there nearly all of the cars have been searched and all of the people have been removed through a risky operation that took place over the last two or three hours and been successful in removing those folks. a lot of the cars are still abandoned in place. we are working on getting plows and tow trucks to clear the
2:18 am
roadways out. >> you had to have teams that were literally going car to car in the middle of the storm? >> that's correct. we used restoreses with snowmobile and four-wheel drive vehicles and high axle drivers. >> where did they go for refuge? did they find places, people's homes, businesses, that sort of thing? >> we found there's still quite a number of the local mini marts are open, convenience stores are open. the folks that we removed from the vehicles, we took them to firehouses and to warming centers and we were able to position them there and we're in the process of providing meals and water to them right now. >> how long is it going to be until you can get the roads back to normal and i imagine it'll be a while? >> yeah, i think, you know, we'll be able to make a better assessment once daylight comes
2:19 am
but they are -- as i said high accumulations of snow in the northern part of the country. still a lot of blowing snow and it's a wet, heavy snow. so we -- we have to get our resources out there and we do have a state, county and local resources out there plowing the roadways. >> ed schneier for suffolk county in new york. talk about people being stuck on the long island expressway. thanks very much, ed. now to george howell because he has been following ireports. that's your eyes on this particular storm. george? well, all right, so george isn't quite ready. we'll check with him in a bit. meanwhile, we'll have more in a minute. tracking that storm for you, of course, there's another story out there, the hunt for a

2:22 am
2:23 am
live eyes on the storm now, you're taking a look at a live image coming to us from boston. you are waking up to a monochromatic world out there and it's pretty much white and looking at new york city right now, columbus circle where the snow doesn't look quite as bad but first let's get you caught up on other things besides the blizzard and talk about the m manhunt for a suspected cop killer on the loose in southern
2:24 am
california. they plan to ramp up their search for christopher dorner when daylight breaks and these exclusive images of him firing a gun in 2005 for l.a. police officers in training. cnn miguel marquez is in los angeles near big bear lake where the man hunt has been focused. >> reporter: the information continues to pour in about mr. dorner and across southern california and in los angeles, police stations everywhere are on high alert. in the mountains east of l.a., a feverish search in big bear despite near whiteout condition. >> we'll continue to search primarily up in the mountain area to make sure there's a lot of cabins abandoned and make sure he didn't hide out for the night. >> reporter: parts of southern california on lockdown. 17 million terrorized by an ex-cop on a murderous rampage. >> kind of scary because you don't know where he is.
2:25 am
we have friends who live all over the mountain and just concerned about them and officers too. >> reporter: police stations across the city under guard. the homes of l.apd officials thn air families also under guard after being called out in dorner's angry 11-dame d hief11. thousands of police across the state called on to duty, tensions so high, twitchy lapd officers shoot up a blue pickup truck resembling dorner's. inside a 71-year-old woman and her daughter delivering newspapers. the 71-year-old in intensive care. the daughter okay, a torrence police officer hears those shots and sees another truck and fires into it. not dorner but a man going to work. luckily he is okay. monica quan and her fiance shot and killed.
2:26 am
wednesday, near san diego, dorner tried to steal a boat. on thursday, 1:25 a.m. in corona he allegedly fires onto two police officers, one is slightly injured. 20 minutes later in riverside, two officers ambushed at a stop light. one dies. the other hospitalized. thursday his manifesto goes public and his burned out truck is found, two guns in it and footprints leading into the woods. a search warrant was served on his mother's house, forensic experts computer forensic experts went in there hoping to search through the computers in that house to figure out where exactly he might be. martin? >> that's miguel, a story we'll continue to follow for you. the other is the blizzard in the northeast, george howell joins us with more of your ireport which is always kind of an interesting way to look at the storm through other people. >> and, you know, you sigh the darned things through other
2:27 am
people. o i ireporters are getting these. new yorkers are resilient. at riverside park, look at that a guy snowboarding. has his dog with him. i think he even treated a little jump, a little, you know, lift to jump while he's snowboarder there. isn't that cool? >> yeah, he's enjoying it just the way you should. over to this, a picture we have from connecticut. an imprint of the door. he opened the door and you have three feet of know right there. the indentations of the door even right will. >> going to have trouble getting out of the door. let's switch over to this. look at these shelves. people went to these stores and bought up as much as they could and bought up the bread, the water to get prepared for this thing, a lot of people with the door went maybe stuck in their
2:28 am
homes -- >> so i think there's a lot who went through and may not have been properly prepared for hurricane sandy but not this time in a classic scene, i say, in manhattan right off 14th street, the trader joe's a separate store for wine. they're not going into the store but wine store and i'm getting as much wine as possible for all the snow comes down. >> good antifreeze. not a bad call. thank you, george. ali velshi has been out on cape cod and want to check in with him to see how the circumstances have been. we'll been doing that when we come back.
2:29 am
2:30 am
2:31 am
2:32 am
♪ good morning, it is 30 minutes past the hour. i'm martin savidge. thanks for starting your day with us. let's get you going with the five stories we are watching this morning. number one, the massive man hunt for christopher dorner firing a gun back in 2005 when he was an lapd cadet. now accused of killing three people including a police officer. that's all in revenge supposedly for getting fired from his, quote, green job. that manhunt focusing on big bear lake, california. police scaled back the search because of heavy snow overnight. number two, we know what
2:33 am
caused the lights now to go out at the new orleans superdome in the middle of the super bowl. it was traced to a relay device that triggered unexpectedly and caused the lights to go out but the company that made it said it was the electric company's department for setting it up wrong. jesse jackson jr. signed a plea deal with prosecutors. he was under investigation for misusing campaign funds. details of that deal are unknown but according to local reports in chicago he could still face time in prison. at number four, michelle obama will attend today's funeral for 15-year-old hadiya pendleton, chicago honor student banned down a week after performing at the president obama's inauguration. pendleton had no gang affiliation and was likely not the intended target. we'll have a report from that funeral later on this morning. and then number five takes
2:34 am
us back to the northeast and that blizzard. drivers in at least three states are banned from the roads, the governor called for a halt of all normal traffic same for rhode island and connecticut. only emergency vehicles can enter now on most highways. the blizzard's biggest effect power outages throughout the northeast, more than 650,000 homes and businesses without power. more than half of those are in the state of massachusetts. you're looking at a neighborhood in providence where power was going on and off all night. >> as we drive up this way, take a look, a very big tree blocking this street right here down and there is plenty of this -- you can see, though, what the heavy snow is doing to cable lines in the course, electrical lines, those are normally maybe 20 feet off the street.
2:35 am
they're now about 15 feet, so that's brought it down then the lights just went out again, in this particular neighborhood we watched the lights go off and back on multiple times as they fix the problem but then the problem happens again. >> and i'm getting around by air is not much easier, nearly 5,000 flights have been canceled to and from the northeast and that is likely to remain the norm. no flights out of boston's logan until at least sunday and it's a similar story at new york's airports. no slights in or out. check your airline to verify the status of your flight before you bother making your way to the airport. one spot hittest hard, rhode island, a virtual whiteout, two feet of snow and winds are gusting at least 60 miles an hour and cnn's poppy harlow is in the middle of it all and i understand power outages are a
2:36 am
huge problem right now. >> reporter: they're a huge problem. we're getting a little bit of reprieve between those heavy wind gusts you mentioned. those happened late last night but want to set the seen in the downtown providence but couldn't know it looking around. take a look in front of city hall. all the office buildings, it's abandoned and deserted and people haven't been here since 4:00, 5:00 last night because the governor called for a total halt of all weekes a-- people have been told to stay home and stay safe. the whiteout conditions you mentioned have been a big problem and want to show the viewers down at the end of the block. remember when we joined you at the the top of the hour and you could see not see the hotel. now i can sort of start to see it. it's getting a little bit better. the know is still falling, 19 degrees which is good and the reason that it is good is
2:37 am
because the heavy, wet snow from the warmer temperatures we saw last night pulled down all the trees and power lines. that's why you have 187 thousand people in the state without power. this is the hardest hit state in terms of power outages. massachusetts, well over 3,000 with their power outlists. soouks -- susan candiotti, what are you seeing? >> reporter: they just upped the numbers to more than 400,000 customers having lost power. fortunately for this section of boston but for the area where we are, we never lost the lights throughout the night and what i'm noticing, as well, about the consistency about the know is now changed. you see, it's still blowing sideways and we're in a bit of a lull where we're not getting high gusts as often as we have
2:38 am
been. the flakes are bigger than they were. check this out, when you pick up the snow, it was so easy to make a small ball, much lighter, much fluffier. that means now we'll see the drifting effect because it's lighter. snow will fall but as wind picks up it will blow it and create lings like this except this is not a true drift but avenue's been shoving the snow up and this is some accumulation we've been seeing and throwing in our yardstick there. it's measuring about 18, close to 19 inches. so as the sun comes up, of course, we'll probably see a few more people out and about. have run into a few who came out of the middle of the night just to take a look around and
2:39 am
experienced this running into people who drove up here from washington, d.c. just so they could see a part of what could be an historic blizzard. poppy, back to you. >> you've been braving it all doing a great job. the one of the interesting things i've seen technology is so sophisticated. we spent part of last night in this emergency management situation and gps on all of their plows and tracks, seeing where the plows are going and come back hi every half hour to clean it up enhopefully they get people back on the roads as soon as possible. they don't think it will stop until 2 p.m. eastern. zain asher, a lot i've been seeing are the concern over all those folks that got on the highways around new york, the long island expressway and it
2:40 am
was really sort of turning into, you know, rain really as soon as it hit the ground that people thought it wasn't going to be that bad and hit the ride, right? >> puppy, you know, it really as bad as i personally expected or not as bad as the blizzard we got back in 2010. the city that never sleeps has become a ghost town. no one on the street. i haven't been as lucky in terms of getting people to talk to me. it's justifily around 5:30. even though it is early in new york it is a city that never slips. i haven't seen that much at all n terms of temperature, 28 degrees, actually freezing out here, over the is central park. 8 to 10 inches. roughly half of what we got three years ago during the visit of 2010 and walked here from my hotel on seventh avenue.
2:41 am
what i found was the main problem was with the sidewalks and found it difficult to walk ten blocks in those conditions. main roads were better. the mayor is actually saying the snowplows plow the streets once if not stuff before soon today rusing around 1700 snowplows also 250,000 tons of taught to make sure the streets are up and running before the community college, there have been travel problems especially on the lild expressway where hundreds were stuck in the snow and we did get an issue with a fatality. other first fatality with a 74-year-old man who was struck and killed in poughkeepsie when he was hit by a car. it's nowhere as bad as we got back in 2010. if you don't have come outside.
2:42 am
it's freezele. best place to be indoors, warm cup of see watching cnn, back to you. >> for those who don't know this is her first week at cnn. nothing that to get you right. you're going a great job, marty, also back. >> you. thank you very much very much and gusting whips are a huge problem especially in eastern parts of meningitis. ali velshi is about as far in eastern massachusetts you can go. >> reporter: i'm here dennis port port along the southern coast of cape cod. go 30 miles to the east you'll get to chatham. this is south than conduct and martha's vineyard. we're at the end of the -- back
2:43 am
end of the storm. they might be losing power because this wind combined with the accumulated snow on some branches and things like that are going to take down more power lines as of about the middle of the night the vast majority were, in fact, in massachusetts. we don't know how that breaks down into cape cod or the islands or the rest of massachusetts. but we do know that there are about 250,000 people who winter here in cape cod. that number goes up to 600,000 or 700,000 in the summer. they've hearty and have seen storms before and some came up and told us this is not as bad as the storm of 1978. bottom line is we're probably at the back end of this thing. there are a few hours left. but as people wake up, they may still stand to lose power in massachusetts. they may already be getting up and may have dodged the worst of it. still travel ban in effect. if they lost power, not much they can do. the crews repairing the power lines are not going to be able
2:44 am
to do that until theind has stopped. we have lost power here in dennis port several times throughout the course of the night, gone off, come back, we're not sure whether those power outage totals refer to those who have had fluctuating power like we have but cold morning and possibly cold weekend for a number of people in the not east including here in massachusetts. we'll stay on the story for you from dennis port, massachusetts. martin, back to you. >> you have got that right, a very hearty ali velshi. thank you very much. well, if you're 1 of the 12,000 students scheduled to take the a.c.t. test this morning in the northeast morning, you might want to check with to see if it was canceled. 103 centers canceled tests yesterday from new jersey to vermont. not to worry, the test dates, yeah, they'll reschedule them. the blizzard is also making travel that is difficult for nba teams.
2:45 am
the new york knicks, they're stuck in minneapolis. they were there all of last night while the san antonio spurs, they delayed their trip east and instead stayed over night in detroit and hoping to make it into new york this afternoon. then the brooklyn nets are ditching their plane for a train to get back to new york. we'd like to see how that works out, san antonio scheduled to play the brooklyn nets on sunday night. how much more know do you expect we'll see and how much more is there to go? meteorologist alexandra steele following all of that for us. good morning again, alexandra. >> hi, everyone, waking up in the northeast looking out two, three feet of snow. it is historic but in the northeast we in essence have been in a snow drought for the last two years and storms haven't dropped more than 6 inches. we've seen more clipper, quick hitters and more rain slows and
2:46 am
the snow lines have been north and west of the big scities. ham den, 34 straight inches. can you believe it. right off 91. madison right along the shoreline in connecticut off 95, 32 inches. bergen county, new jersey, 15. worcester, mass, 10. boston, 10. outside of that 10 and 20 inches. new haven, 11. you get the picture. let me show you where it is. center of the circulation and it is all moving to the north and east. you are not done yet, though. let me show you what we're seeing and how we've siege it through central mass and central connecticut. bright white is where the snow is falling 2 inches an hour where we're ending up with incredibly hefty snow totals in the 20s en30s. so this morning we're still seeing the snow. we're going to watch this area of low pressure move north and
2:47 am
east, 8:00, western areas of new york city, long island, massachusetts, it all moves out. by noon you can see one:00 and watch it wind down. even when it winds down tonight we still have 30 and 40-mile-an-hour wind gusts blowing around and we'll still have blizzard conditions potentially. >> thanks. moving now to california. they have problems with the weather conditions out there as they search for an accused killer. cnn talks exclusively with the man who watched cnn dorner at the lapd training academy. that's coming up. stayfree ultra. flexible layers move with your body while thermocontrol wicks moisture away. keep moving. stayfree.
2:48 am

2:49 am
15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >> you just read my mind. >> announcer: just one little piece of information and they can open bogus accounts, stealing your credit, your money and ruining your reputation. that's why you need lifelock to relentlessly protect what matters most...
